Storming Win at Home for London Welsh Women
London Welsh WRFC welcomed Rosslyn Park to Old Deer Park on a glorious Sunday afternoon for their second game of the season. Welsh were determined to react positively to their disappointing defeat last weekend and this was obvious from the start.


A dominant Welsh scrum saw them win against the head. The forward drive gave the backs space and some excellent handling through the backs saw Isia Storey score in the corner.

Welsh continued to heap the pressure on Park and the second try again came from a turned over scrum. This time the referee awarded a free kick to Welsh and quick thinking by Ruth Cook saw the ball passed to Evans who danced through the Park defence to score.

It was then Park's turn to put pressure on Welsh and for a time they were in the Welsh 22. A knock on meant Park were unable to convert the pressure into points and after another solid scrum from Welsh, Evans kicked the ball deep into the Park half. Excellent chasing by the Welsh backs, put the defending full back under pressure and Welsh managed to turn over the ball. The ball was fed out to the Welsh backs and a great line by Clare Street meant she found a route through the opposition to score. Street then converting her own try.

Park again came back at Welsh determined to get some points on the board. Welsh were slow to react to a Park penalty and some excellent handling by Park saw them spread the ball wide to score in the corner taking the score to 17-5.

What followed was an unsettled period of the game with both sides determined to be the next to score. Welsh did not want to let their early lead slip and some fantastic footwork from Lindsay Topham, with a show-and-go then chomping up the metres she was stopped just short of the line. Another dominant scrum from Welsh saw Park give away a penalty which was again taken quickly and Street stormed over the line under the posts. Street again converting her own try.

From the re-start Park had a period of possession but some fantastic defensive work from Welsh saw their efforts contained. Half time came just when it was needed, the score 24-5.

The second half started as the first had ended with possession tasseled between the teams with each spending time in their own area. Park were dogged in the attack and slipped through some tackles to score under the posts, quickly adding the conversion and taking the score to 24-12.

Welsh responded immediately putting pressure on Park which resulted in a knock-on. Another strong scrum allowed Welsh to secure their own ball and regain possession. Evans spotted a gap in the Park defence and sprinted up the pitch to score. Converted by Street.

Energised by their try, Welsh came straight back at Park. Some great link-play from Storey and Nat Smith saw lots of metres made. Welsh had a period of possession with excellent work by both backs and forwards. Good defence from Park and some errors made by Welsh meant they were unable to capitalise on their trip into the Park 22.

Welsh continued to heap on the pressure, looking for that elusive bonus point try. Under pressure on their own try line, the Park fly-half kicked the ball into touch which gave Welsh a line-out in Park's

22. Although Welsh got a good catch and drive, Park were able to steal possession in the maul and their speedy fly-half made a break. She was stopped in her tracks by Storey who regained possession for Welsh. Welsh got the ball to Evans whose fantastic footwork saw her dodging through the defence to score.

A strong restart saw Welsh immediately back in Park's 22. After some strong defending by Park they were awarded with a scrum on their own 5m line. An incredible drive from the Welsh pack put the Park scrum half under pressure and Evans was able to steal the ball off her and dive straight over the try line for her fourth and final try of the day and take the score to 41-12.

A lot of the next 5 minutes were spent in Welsh's half but an injury ended the match 2 minutes early to give Welsh their first emphatic win of the season, much to the delight of the players and coaches. We wish the injured Park back a speedy recovery.

Forward of the match went to Nat Smith for her ever-consistent carries forward and superb tackling and defensive effort.

Back of the match unsurprisingly went to Miriam Evans for her four tries, incredible footwork, speed and spark that she brings onto the pitch.


London Welsh WRFC's next game is away against Wimbledon on 11/10/2015. All supporters welcome.
